Have you ever lost track of which way the hair was turned after it was placed back on the table?

Did you know that there is a tool that many wigmakers use that addresses the above problems?

Drawing mats (also known as drawing cards)  are offered in a 2 piece set and available in a variety of lengths. (Quality and size vary by manufacturer)

Drawing mats (or drawing cards) are used to prepare hair during board work.  Wig makers use the set of cards to hold loose bulk hair while drawing off and turning the hair.
